Default Updating an Existing Website to XHTML and CSS


I am having difficulty trying to determine the best plan of action for updating my website from HTML to XHTML and CSS:


A lot of my pages have many pictures on them that require a structured layout with images and descriptive text....something that I know CSS is useful for, but I am struggling with how best to implement the positioning/layout. The images are currently positioned using fixed width tables. A good example of what I am working with can be seen here:


Finally, I am trying to re-structure my navigation (looking for suggestions) to make it more useful and also add search capability to the entire website (not sure what is involved with that).

Any suggestions, ideas, tips or thoughts are much appreciated.

I recently converted mine Web site (http://www.mediasworks.com/) to XHTML/CSS complaint. It takes time and effort, but not much if we use 'Find-Replace' functions. Example: I used HomeSite+ to do it quickly.

I did a source on the site mentioned in the last reply and my page validated with any errors. There was one warning that I was able to get rid of with the following line:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
